Met Opera: La Rondine

Puccini’s bittersweet love story, which follows an elegant woman from high society and an idealistic young man who offers her an alternative to her life of excess, stars soprano Angel Blue as the French courtesan Magda, opposite tenor Jonathan Tetelman in his highly anticipated company debut as Ruggero.

Also in their Met debuts, soprano Emily Pogorelc and tenor Bekhzod Davronov complete the principal cast as Lisette and Prunier, with Speranza Scappucci on the podium to lead a score that combines the charm of Viennese operetta with the romance and heartbreak of Italian classics like La Bohème and La Traviata.

The rarely performed opera returns to the Met for the first time in more than a decade in Nicolas Joël’s Art Deco–inspired staging, which transports audiences from the heart of Parisian nightlife to a dreamy vision of 1920s French Riviera.
